    • Bing is Smacking down SUX fanatics. Sux needs to be put Down!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • good points.

      MSFt makes almost 30 billions of net profit a year going forward, and numerous new businesses such as surface tablets are taking shape. Balance sheet has almost 70 billons of cash, and is ont of a handful of companies in the world that still has a triple AAA credit rating.

      Stock is low now, but it will soon bounce up!!!! How long can a company with such high quality be traded at an effective p/e just 6 ? I would like to see!!!!!

      • I guess Softy can afford to increase the dividend by 5 to 10% in the April's announcement. With its hugh marketing machine and almost monopoly on desktop and the enterprise world, it is loading too much cash. It can buy out firms small and large if it is determined to take the lead. Talent can be bought, market share can be grepped by undercut the competitor. I like it prudent approach in growing it organically while accumulate the wealth for us.. Financially, it is increasing both top and bottom line. With so much cash, it still can have 24% ROE, amazing! I have seen positive change in its mobile strategy and wish it to monetize Bing and mobile phone further for years to come. The inroads to China and India, half the population of the world, and the recovered business spending in US all bolted well for the dominant giant.

        yes, good point. without bing msft would make $33 billion profit. who want that?

    • According to StatCounter, Bing has gone nowhere since it was launched. It is still at 3.7% usage share worldwide.

    • "Microsoft has been late in OS"

      Yes, but with an entrenched monopoly you can abuse the market like that. For a while, not forever.

      ", Word, Xbox, CRM"

      Crumbling, stagnant, also-ran. Next.

      "but every time it beated the competitors and delivered knock out bunches."

      Only when the existing monopolies can be abused further and extended. They fail at everything else.

      "Let see if Bing can inches slowly and surely, match and surpass the champ in revenue in search"

      Now you've entered the realm of comedy. No one even knows what Bing is, let alone use it.

      "... . in addition to a new wave of OS refresh, office purchase, mobile phone licsense and Xbox innovation."

      Windows 8 looks like a big dud so far. Office is flat at best.Mobile is moribund, with no success in sight. And Xbox, the same for how many years(?), is no model of innovation. Just a stripped down little PC really.

      The company you shill for has no future.
